comment Nmap script execution to detect heartbleed is failing
@user53029 I'd recommend removing the old one, as long as you have the required dependencies. I use checkinstall to make dpkg manage it and allow easy removal and upgrades. Just be sure to apt-get install libssl-dev before you build; all other build dependencies should be included (apart from a compiler, of course!).

comment nmap ipv6 os scan fails
@SebastianBrestin The current version of Nmap is 6.47. IPv4 and IPv6 use completely different fingerprinting engines with separate databases, but the recommendations still apply.

@drs Thanks for the suggestion and the edit. For posterity, I had been using tinyurl.com/nmap-heartbleed for ease of communication when the Heartbleed issue first came out.

comment Using $? in an if statement
@llua It's not pointless. $? holds the status of the last pipeline, which is not the test ([) command in the if statement. The example is testing whether some command was successful. You can do the same with && and ||, but it can make long, unreadable lines compared to if [ $? -eq 0 ]. The same argument goes for if some command

comment How do I explain to this website team that they need to support Linux?
Have you tried it in Chrome on Windows? As far as a web developer is concerned, the differences should be in layout engines and JavaScript engines, not in operating system. If it's broken on Chrome for Windows, you have a stronger argument.
